I heard a rumor that Aaron's rent to own store in Moberly has bedbugs & gave them to one of their customers. Anyone else heard this rumor?

We had a customer report to our store on March 8, 2013 that the pre-leased living group originally leased back in October 2012 had bed bugs. Two different pest control companies confirmed this, along with seeing signs of bugs in other areas of the house. Although it was not determined where the bed bugs originated, we paid to have the customer's house treated professionally with extreme heat which kills all the bugs. In addition, we had our store inspected and NO signs of bed bugs were found! This was the first issue in the Moberly area of bed bugs, we handled it promptly and professionally to satisfy the customer.

Well thank you for your response. In this town like any other town you can't believe rumors. Of course your company could'nt accept the furniture back if they defaulted on the lease.

That was very nice of Aaron's to pay to have their house professionally treated. Everything I've read about bedbugs states once a place gets bedbugs they are very difficult to get rid of. It's scary to think where the bugs came from.

These days anything is possible. I read in the news last week a Greyhound bus was infested with roaches. It was so bad the had to stop the bus unload passengers & luggage then wait for another bus to continue the route. Gross!

Yea they might pay you pretty good, but they fail to mention in your interview that your suppose to basically give up your hole life for them. If you have kids or a signaficant other you should not work for Aaron's because you will never have time for them and you are suppose to run around and market for them when your out doing things with family, friends, etc. They have no respect for their employees at all. As far as the bed bug thing goes it is possible because when they get mattresses back they are suppose to clean it with a steam cleaner. Kinda hard to do when they don't have one they use a rug doctor half the time and others if it looks good they don't clean it at all! Not to mention how many computers, tvs, and other electronics they get back with roaches. I would never get anything from there save your money and buy it from somewhere else for a third of what you will pay at Aaron's
